A PAX favorite, my Total Body Tables workout kept us warm, toasty, and sore the next day. The sun came out to join us too, so instead of being under the pavilion at Thicket, we were on the sidewalk getting some sunshine on our cheekbones. My F3 commented later that I actually had some sunburn on my face! Not something common in fall-but-feels-like-winter weather.
Total Body Tables is a tabata-style workout (1 minute each with 10 seconds to rotate) with 5 stations for 6 rounds. The first four stations can be done in any order and are each dedicated to a specific area: Arms, Cardio, Legs, and Abs. The fifth station is done all together before the individual PAX start back at the particular station where they began. Each round has a different exercise, see as follows: (My apologies for the formatting. It’s less confusing on paper or in person.)

We warmed up with a few dynamic stretches and a quick run around the small circle. We stretched at the end too (my favorite part), did COT and Nameorama, including naming FNG Hummingbird. Welcome!
Since Harley Quinn was rocking it in Disney this week, I brought chilled dunkin mocha bottles and tiny paper cups to present a little Coffeeteria. My kids raided the snacks a bit before we were done with our beatdown, but there were some crepes, oranges, paleo bars, and bananas too. I think we all hung out and chatted for a good while. It is a blessing to be with you ladies. Better Together!
